New York City Closes all Schools, Restaurants, Bars, Nightclubs, Cafe’s, Coffee Houses, Movie Theaters, and Public Spaces…

The Big Apple is about to get very interesting…  A dense, mostly liberal population, all bound up in close proximity, now instructed by executive order and forced mandatory compliance, to essentially shut down.  [Link to NYC Press Releases]

New York Mayor de Blasio – “Our lives are all changing in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago. We are taking a series of actions that we never would have taken otherwise in an effort to save the lives of loved ones and our neighbors.

Now it is time to take yet another drastic step. The virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars and places where we sit close together. We have to break that cycle.”

Effective tomorrow, March 16, New York City schools will close.

“Tomorrow, I will sign an Executive Order limiting restaurants, bars and cafes to food take-out and delivery. Nightclubs, movie theaters, small theater houses, and concert venues must all close. The order will go into effect Tuesday, March 17 at 9:00 AM.”

“This is not a decision I make lightly. These places are part of the heart and soul of our city. They are part of what it means to be a New Yorker. But our city is facing an unprecedented threat, and we must respond with a wartime mentality.” (read more)

    Since when is 75 people dying and a little over 400 people infected in this city of millions called an EPIDEMIC? So far in the US 48,000 people have died and 87,000 people are hospitalized because of the regular FLU!!! The government has informed us of the dangers and what to do to avoid getting the Coronavirus… This is the USA we have a choice whether we want to take the risk and open our businesses or not. We have the choice if we want to risk going out or eating out. TAKING PEOPLE’S LIVELIHOODS AWAY BECAUSE 75 PEOPLE IN THE US HAVE DIED IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!! It looks like its time for a little Civil Disobedience from business owners and those who support them. The media has scared the daylights out of the general population but we need to wake up and fight this!

      Just remember the biggest difference in a state of emergency rather than Marshal law is in Marshall law the military takes over. State of emergency can still restrict or revoke some of our basic civil rights.

    So when does everyday Joe have a say so in all of this? I’ve about had it with these closings and indefinite cancellations. If folks want to stay home, let that be their own choice. This is America. Right?!
